The first case profiled had gingival recession exposing root surfaces, yet there was no discussion of etiology or discussion of consideration for periodontal plastic surgery. Some margins were left in dentin. Cementation technique left out some important steps to avoid leakage and sensitivity.

Excellent results Dr Vafiadis...Is there an issue with bonding to dentin with the case where you brought back the anterior arch from by 2mms? In making the provisionals did you have to create a common path of draw of all the preps to allow the Protemp shell to be drawn from the preps in one piece without it shrink wrapping and locking on the preps? Do you spot etch the preps only without applying bond before adding the flowable composite as the bonding agent?
Which flowable do you use?
Thank you! Sharon Goodwin

Guided Preparations and the Future of Minimally Invasive Dentistry
An introduction to describe the use of digitally designed, 3D-printed guides to prepare teeth. This state of the arts technology allows dentists to efficiently prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration in one visit. The objective of this presentation is to provide the audience an introduction to with the advancement of 3D-printing in dentistry and it’s use as it pertains to restorative options. With computer aided procedures we can now digitally design and prepare 3D-printed guides to precisely prepare teeth and deliver the final restoration without the need for a temporary.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Modern Occlusal Concepts in Esthetic & Implant Dentistry

Modern Occlusal Concepts in Esthetic & Implant Dentistry
Occlusion is probably not one of the most popular topics in dental meetings and conferences nowadays especially if compared to implants and esthetics. Indeed it was considered in dentistry much more important just a few years ago than it is now. There is growing distance between the evolution of scientific research in the field, including available recent literature and several popular clinical approaches. It seems even difficult to have universal definitions related to this topic: the term “occlusion” itself is often associated with different adjectives to define it and many other terms are used with quite often differences in meaning, each of us gives a different meaning to the same terms, according to differences in treatment philosophies or in different specialties.

The webinar will cover the basic features of Logicon and how it works, our recommended protocol for using it, and its role in the treatment plan for the version (4.0) presently on the market, where the dentist selects the surfaces to analyze and initiates the analysis. The webinar will also describe a new version (5.0) presently under FDA review that raises digital caries detection to a new level where all the surfaces in a bitewing radiograph are analyzed automatically at one time to give the dentist (and patient) a more global view of the state of their teeth.

The Merger of Orthodontics with Cosmetic Dentistry Premium Member Content

The Merger of Orthodontics with Cosmetic Dentistry
As orthodontists, we don’t do laminates. But when we are finishing a case, sometimes the smile just doesn’t “look right”. But not all our patients either want or can afford laminates. Not all even need them to get a great smile. So, what principles can we learn from the cosmetic dentists and use in our orthodontic cases? Apparently quite a lot! In this presentation, Dr. Sarver will illustrate finishing procedures such as reshaping contacts, connectors, embrasures, and even soft tissue contouring with lasers to achieve that next level of smile presentation in your orthodontic cases.

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery

Two Immediate Temporization Methods Exemplified: Flap vs. Punch Technique in Implant Surgery
Protocols and techniques for immediate tooth replacement in the esthetic zone have become more popular and predictable within the past decade. Two different clinical scenarios are presented where immediate temporization of implants placed into healed or augmented ridges is exemplified. The benefits of augmentation prior to implant placement and temporization are that flap elevation is not required; therefore, the blood supply to the labial plate is not compromised, thereby eliminating potential midfacial recession. In addition, the soft tissue subgingival shape of the temporary crown can be non-surgically sculpted at the time of implant placement since the patient is already anesthetized.

Range & Mean Distribution Frequency of Individual Tooth Width of the Maxillary Anterior Dentition

Range & Mean Distribution Frequency of Individual Tooth Width of the Maxillary Anterior Dentition
Proper diagnosis of tooth size for each patient is critical in treatment planning for aesthetic restorative dentistry. The goal of this study was to determine the clinically relevant range and mean distribution frequency of individual tooth width of the maxillary anterior dentition within a given population of patients. Mean values for restoration of tooth size were not interchangeable for the different group size of patients or respective tooth groups. The results of this study suggest that there exists a range value of maxillary anterior tooth width for both males and females. Gender differences are a critical factor in restoring an aesthetically pleasing smile.
